While I was looking for ways to use up my leftover roasted chicken I came across the concept of a chicken salad sandwich. At its base, a chicken salad seems to be shredded cooked chicken mixed with mayonnaise. A lot of recipes also included celery and green onions. I decided to go with a basic sandwich for the first time. The chicken salad sandwich was easy to make and really good! Now that I have had the basic sandwich I am thinking of all sort of possibilities. I could add curry, chutney, herbs, nuts, raisins, cranberries, etc. You could also do a turkey salad sandwich. The possibilities seem to be near endless. I can't wait to roast another chicken so that I can use the leftovers to make more chicken salad sandwiches.
